    A recent German documentary with never before released scenes from Jerry Lewis holocaust film. Jerry has this film in a safe deposit box somewhere and vowed that no one will ever see it. It is one of the most sought after films of all time. There has been some still shots that have been released but not actual footage from the film until now.

    If he NEVER intended anyone to see ever, why not destroy the only copy instead of keeping it in a safety deposit box?

    First of all I'm sure he has several copies of the film. He doesn't want to destroy his own work and maybe he has just shown it to some close friends and family.

    It's probably as horrible as I imagine it would be, I hope he gets buried with it..

    For me, The Day the Clown Cried will always be the time when Jackie apologized to Nancy for the Jessica Hahn bathtub incident.

    Worse. He's a clown hired by the Nazis to march CHILDREN INTO THE OVENS.

    Lewis thought this was the role that would win him an Oscar. At some point he woke from his stupor and decided instead that no one should ever see this.

    Yeah, just watched the whole video. I was always under the impression that it was a misguided goofball movie, but this looks incredibly heavy. I'd love to watch the whole thing.

    Jerry Lewis is a fukkin genius!!!

    A true Renaissance Man--comedian, actor, writer, producer, director.

    Sooooo much good stuff in this clip.

    (I have to find the English version so I can hear everything Jerry says.)

    I remember back in 2004 Howard was making fun of the film, I'm too lazy to look for it though.

    By no one I mean the general public and film critics. It's like saying no one will ever see Howard's house and apartment. The interior designer released the photos but for the most part very few people have seen the interior of the two residences.
